Our 5th Grade Grads had a BLAST (pun intended!) at their start-studded end of the year party last night!! They ate, they danced, they had ice cream, took photos, got fabulous swag bags and watched a movie under the stars. Our new astronaut mascot also made its first public appearance and was a huge hit! We are so glad we were able to send off this class in style!

Thank you to all the parents and teachers that participated and volunteered to make this event a success! Special shoutouts to Chin-Chin Cafe for donating to our swag bags, the Zone for the food, Ashburn Orthodontics for the T-shirts, and Loudoun Station for sponsoring and hosting this event! Happy Summer to the 5th Grade Class of 2021! 🥳

Mital and Kristin are excited to come on board as Co-Presidents for the 2021-22 school year! With a rising 5th and rising 2nd grader, they have exciting things planned to make next year one of our best ones yet.

A Farewell Message, from your Co-Presidents
As we set sail for middle school, and the end of our time at Discovery ES, we would like to thank our Discovery community. Without all of our Trailblazing students, families, and TEACHERS, we would not have been able to achieve all that we have done, over the past two years. We are so fortunate to live within a school district that holds such a wonderfully diverse and caring population.

THANK YOU for allowing us to serve as your PTO Co-Presidents. It has been a pleasure and an honor to be able to work so closely with the wonderful staff at Discovery...they really are the BEST! You will all be in GREAT hands as we hand the baton to your new PTO board. Keep blazing that trail!!

Happy end of the first day of school, Trailblazers!! It was a great first day - ie, all the technology worked, and nobody cried 🤣🤣 Celebrating at Sweet Frog with extra marshmallows for these troopers. Thank you to all the staff and teachers, especially Mrs. Farley and Ms. DiLorenzo!
I missed the pick up date for the yearbooks and was told there would be another pick up date - does anyone know when that is?
Does anyone know who the yearbook representative is? (We are in desperate need of a yearbook, but when we went to order yesterday, we had missed the deadline). We never purchased a yearbook because we kept telling our daughter we’d get the 5th grade one aaaaand we missed the deadline eek lol!! I emailed Painter and my daughter’s teacher last night and I just got an email from Painter saying to contact the yearbook representative, but does anyone know the yearbook person? I’m hoping we can still get one (and I don’t care if I have to pay double!) 🤞🏻 😩
I don’t see any teachers?!?!!! 😭😭😭
Anyone missing a dog?
Hi Discovery... I photo sponsored your Santa fundraiser and need your support! I've been nominated (super exciting) and up against businesses that have been around for years. (I started last year) Please show your support by voting (they changed voting options to daily this year) Thank you, Tracy Kelley Pride and Joy Photography
